Waiting on Wednesday: Live Through This by Mindi Scott

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event that is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spineand spotlights upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

My pick this week is:
Sometimes hiding the truth requires more than a lie . . .

From the outside, Coley Sterling’s life seems pretty normal . . . whatever that means. It’s not perfect—her best friend is seriously mad at her and her dance team captains keep giving her a hard time—but Coley’s adorable, sweet crush Reece helps distract her from the annoying drama. Plus, she has a great family to fall back on—with a stepdad and mom who would stop at nothing to keep her and her siblings happy and safe.

But Coley has a lot of secrets. She won’t admit—not even to herself—that her almost-perfect life is her own carefully-crafted façade. That for years she’s been burying the shame and guilt over a relationship that crossed the line. Now, Coley and Reece are getting closer, and as Coley has the chance at her first real boyfriend, a decade’s worth of lies are on the verge of unraveling.

Mindi Scott offers an absorbing, layered glimpse into the life of an everygirl living a nightmare that no one would suspect in this unforgettable powerhouse of a novel.

Format: Paperback
 Length: 304 pages
Expected publication: October 2nd 2012 by Simon Pulse

I have recently decided that I must add more contemporary to my reading diet and this book
sounds like something I would really like.  I love contemporary books that are strong in the emotion
department. Lets face it when you see "powerhouse of a novel" you know it's going to be a strong book!

Well this is what I am Waiting on This Wednesday, what are you waiting on?

  6. The cover is beautiful, and the book sounds really great. Only at the beginning of this year did I finally read a contemporary. It was The Sky is Everywhere by Jandy Nelson, and it hooked me to to the genre. And I am so glad that it did, because I get to read books like these.
